Student Data Lap Books are a fun alternative to data binders and data folders. They are an interactive way for students to monitor their progress.
Setting these up the first week of school can be exciting as well as a good way to discuss goal-setting and following directions.
This is great to start during back to school, however the student data lap books can be implemented at any time of the year.
Research shows when students track their data they make higher gains than students who do not monitor their progress (by over 30%!).
The foldables and customization of the lap book makes students excited about tracking and analyzing their data.
Great for conferring with individual students/small groups.
Excellent for student-led conferences with their parents!
I kept this simple and easy to manage. There are 6 interactive pieces:
My Test Scores foldable- for students to track their test score grades. This helps them analyze their strengths and weaknesses in order to set SMART goals.
Interventions foldable- Are you required to show evidence of strategies you've tried with a student? This is the foldable for you! There are three flaps: "Strategies I'm Currently Trying," "Strategies I've Abandoned," and "Strategies I've Tried that Worked."
My Goals & My Rationale This is an area to attach SMART goals written on index cards. It's very interesting to see the quality in goals progress through the year.
Writing Rubrics- a pocket to store writing rubrics-this also helps students with their goal setting.
Growth Graphs pocket
A pocket to store graphs the students are using to track their progress.
*Graphs and writing rubrics are not included since every teacher has their own preferred documents.
I hope you and your students enjoy diving into data!
